The Post-School Survey has new Features! CCTS would like to announce that we are now able to populate your student leaver (graduate or dropouts) list! Districts just need to verify the student leaver information in our system by June 1, 2014. When you log into the Online Data Collection System, your leaver demographics have already been loaded into your districts dashboard. Data managers will need to verify the information, and add or delete leavers as appropriate. To walk district users through the new and improved streamlined process, we have created a short 5 minute video.
